Dulce de Leche Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies

This is a variation on my favorite cream cheese marble brownies, this uses only half the amount of cream cheese with the addition of dulce de leche for more yum factor! 🙂

You can melt some caramel candies or your fave chocolate to sub for the dulce de leche. Add some nuts too to the brownies if you have some; I was saving mine for another recipe :D.

Make the Brownies: In a heavy saucepan, melt butter, add sugar, take pan off heat then with a wooden spoon mix butter and sugar well until it’s cool enough to add the eggs and vanilla; mix well.

Add cream cheese mixture on top then the dulce de leche; using a toothpick or point of a knife, cut dulce de leche into the cream cheese layer to make a marble or swirl effect. Bake brownies for about 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool then cut into squares. Enjoy!
